"Good to Yourself" as written by Paul Gordon and Vonda Shepard....
I stopped at an all night diner
Oh, it seemed like a romantic thing to do
Yeah, but I'm lonely, it ain't like the movies
In the old days
I saw you sittin' in the corner counting change,
Like you were counting your daydreams
Then your eyes, they suddenly hit me like a railroad train

Oh, sometimes I think I might be immune to a guy like you
But I can't walk away, no I can't walk away
Oh, tonight I see you're at the end of the line, well, me too
But we all gotta pay

I know you'd be good to me
I know you'd try to be good to me
But in the end, baby can't depend on no one else
When the chips are down, I have found
You better be good to yourself, good to yourself

I guess I've known you before, maybe in high school
or maybe you're just one more guy I went looking for
The boy next door
Or maybe I'm the girl with the see-through eyes
But I watch too many movies,
I get tangled in the story of someone else's life
Baby, who am I, and who are you?

Oh, sometimes I go to bed at night
And I think that I'm with you
Then I say a little prayer, 'cause I threw it all away
The other day you called up to see if I miss you
And all I could say was

I know you'd be good to me
I know you'd try to be good to me
But in the end, baby can't depend on no one else
When the chips are down, I have found
You better be good to yourself, good to yourself

Night has a clever disguise
She makes me believe that I'm lonely
I should know by now if I can make it to tomorrow
I can work it out

'cause in the end, baby can't depend on no one else
When the chips are down, I have found
You better be good to yourself, good to yourself
